Words truly cannot begin to describe this wonderful paradise. Our stay here was amazing. The views are incredible over the bay. The hospitality and friendliness of the owners, Phil and Debbie, and all the islanders we met were second to none. It was fantastic being able to jump from the dock into the water and wade around. But you have to literally look before you leap. We saw sharks, barracuda, turtles, dolphins, stingrays and a manatee right from our perch overlooking the water. It was amazing! At times, we were afraid to nap because we didn't want to miss a moment.
The cottage is very private but surprisingly close to everything you would need - groceries, restaurants, liquor store, etc. We have stayed in numerous places throughout the Out Islands and would have to say this cottage is one of the very best. Beautifully decorated, with great little touches that made the stay comfortable and serene. Imagine having a wonderful dinner overlooking the turquoise water, cocktails on the deck while the sun sinks in the west and dolphins skip through the waves. This is what we experienced and have missed every single day since we left.
We ate at a few great restaurants on the island as well. Chez Pierre's is a must as well as Seaside Village, Stella Maris and the outdoor grill at the Clarence Town marina.
We discovered some great secluded private beaches, but were a little underwhelmed with the Blue Hole. There was quite a bit of garbage in the water that had been brought in by the current from the Atlantic, and we couldn't imagine snorkelling around in that. Perhaps if the current was different, it would have been better. But we liked just discovering our own quiet little stretches of beach.
In a nutshell, this is one of the most outstanding sun holidays we have had and are already counting the days until our return.
